A team of Texas MBA students placed 2nd in the national Renewable Energy Case Competition, held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, over the weekend. The competition was among 12 top business schools across the country, including: McCombs, Booth, Harvard, Duke Fuqua, UNC, Tuck, Columbia, Cornell, Michigan Ross, Berkley, UCLA and Kellogg.
Team members (left-to-right): Josh Stillman, David McParland, Franklin Fuchs, Nancy Palma and Jordan Hobfoll
The case, which focused on cultivating recommendations for a renewable energy project, concerned the development of a wind or solar project with a storage component in California. Besides big bragging rights for coming in second within such a worthy field of competitors, the team also won a $1,000 prize.
Congratulations to Franklin Fuchs, Jordan Hobfoll, David McParland, Nancy Palma and Josh Stillman for their success!
